Update on Emerita Investment

As part of the private placement financing completed by Emerita Resources Corp.

Details of the financing can be found in Emerita’s press release dated December 20, 2017. Following the private placement and the expiration of 2,000,000 share purchase warrants that Sulliden previously purchased, Sulliden presently holds 9,610,000 common shares and 2,250,000 warrants. Accordingly, Sulliden’s securityholdings represent approximately 6.84% of Emerita’s issued and outstanding common shares and 8.30% on a partially diluted basis and Sulliden has ceased to be an insider of Emerita. Sulliden has filed under Emerita’s profile on SEDAR an early warning report in respect of these trades.
